Nice idea Stephen!
Now that you mention it, I had actually forgot how early photography became one of my interests. Although at the time, more like a documentation thing than anything else.
My first imaging tool in any carrying around sense was a cell phone. A Samsung SGH V200, at that time I was 15 years old. As the years litteraly speed by, I can see the image quality improving from phone to phone to compact to DSLR.
I added a bit of text to each image =)
